Product Description

Altra shoes take a different approach to natural running. Rather than a simple zero-drop midsole and a minimalist upper, Altra shoes offer a design that's contoured to match the shape of a foot inside and out. The Men's Torin Running Shoe builds on this with 15mm of midsole cushioning, a feature which helps to absorb impact without forcing you to sacrifice your form when you hit the road or the trail. Inside this shoe, your toes can spread out, your heel and forefoot are equidistant from the ground, and your foot is free to move as it was meant to. The result is a platform that helps to reduce injuries so you can run more than ever.

    I've been running in no-drop shoes for a number of years now, and I have steadily "progressed" from running in FiveFingers to now the Torins. Even after months of running in each less-cushioned shoe model (FiveFingers, Merrell Bare Access, Skechers GoBionic) I guess my feet never really got used to the more minimal cushioning. The best I could do was 10 miles without feeling bottom-of-foot pain. My very first run in the Torins was 15 miles, and I have been virtually pain-free ever since. I realize these shoes are heavier than most other no-drop models, but they have allowed me to do higher-mileage training without the pain and foot injuries.

    As a side note...I'm 6'1", about 175 lbs, and size 12 shoes. I average between 30 and 50 miles running a week in preparing for marathons once to twice a year. I realize that different people with body types and different mechanics all have different needs. The Torins have been the best no-drop running shoe for me.

    It should be noted that I own five different pairs of Altra running shoes. I've been a fan of the brand since their launch, and it was the Altra brand that first introduced me to the zero-drop platform. That being said, here's my thoughts on the Altra Torrin.

    Altra Footwear has designed a line-up of running shoes that mimic the natural shape and heel-to-toe ratio of the foot thereby allowing the body to run more naturally, more efficiently. By building a shoe that maps the design of your foot the Altra Torrin allows your feet and toes to lay in a natural and relaxed position. Due to the gender-specific design the foot maintains its proper anatomical position allowing for maximum shock absorption and a more powerful toe off.

    The Torrin is no exception to the Altra design rules. It provides all the benefits of Altra's natural fit and feel with the added bonus of an increased stack height (28mm) for those who want a little more cushion in their running life. The Two-Layer EVA/AltraBound(tm) offers more cushioning but don't expect a Hoka One One-esque run which has slightly more give than the Torrin.

    The shoe comes with two insoles, a 5mm Contour insole for light underfoot cushioning and a 3mm Strengthen insole which allows your feet to build strength and support. I LOVED the 5mm Contour insole, and found it to be an incredibly comfortable insole. However, in the case of the Torrin, I had to use the 3mm insole because of a higher volume foot.

    My only other critique centers on the thin rubber toe rand (seemingly added for aesthetic value) which took me an extended period of time to break in.

    Awesome cushioning in this shoe. It does not have cushioning like a Hoka shoe, though its pretty comfortable. Love that they come with extra shoe soles for a lighter feel. Recommend you order a size bigger with Altra's. I wear 10.5 and must wear 11.5 in Altra's so that my feet ride comfortable.

    This is a great shoe! I've been a forefoot/minimalist runner for four or five years, but I've always had some minor aches and pains in my soles after runs longer than 10 miles. I run on pavement 95% of the time, and while minimalist shoes have taught me proper form, they just don't provide enough protection for long runs on the road in my opinion.

    I really do believe that the human body is designed to run, and I feel that traditional stability type shoes with a heel that is much higher than the forefoot encourage bad form and do not allow the muscles of the foot and leg to work the way God/Nature designed them. With that in mind, I also don't think that we were designed to run on pavement, which has really only been common for around a hundred years or so. I live in a city that has many miles of wonderfully paved mutii-use paths, but only a few miles of muddy, rutty, sloppy trails. So pavement makes up almost all of my miles.

    This shoe allows one to run with a natural forefoot motion, but mimics the cushion of the natural surfaces such as dirt and grass on which we have been running for millions of years. Turns the hard unforgiving road into a nice soft grassy meadow. Best shoe I've ever used for long runs..... by far.

    My favorite Altra shoe over the last few years has been the Instinct 1.0 model. This shoe was perfect for me in every way with lots of room in the toebox, both vertical and lateral and I purchased lots of pairs. I then tried the Instinct 1.5 model and found them to be a little restrictive in the toebox.... Bummer! Many other users disagreed with me but my feet have the final say. So I wasn't crazy about the 1.5 model. Now that they are starting to wear I just recently purchased two pairs of the Torin first generation model..... AND I LOVE EM! Nice and roomy and the quality seems to be above average. Size wise they seem to run the same as the Instinct 1.0 models.... Maybe a tad longer by just a hair. I know I am behind the curve on the Torins because the newer model Torin 1.5 is now out with some great looking colors. So if you are a fan of the original Instincts give the original Torins a try.......... They seem to have a little more padding than the Instincts do but just enough to make your feet happy.
